Your brain is plastic. Start small to strengthen your focus.

We used to think that your brain stopped changing once we became adults. Now, we know that your brain is “plastic.” It never stops changing.

When you read, your brain changes. When you get angry, your brain changes. When you meditate, your brain changes. Neurons that fire together, wire together.

If you want to be more focused, then you should practice being focused. You can make it easy on yourself by starting small, or limiting your time. Every time you suppress an urge to block out a distraction, and stay focused, you make it easier to do that in the future.
